I believe folk misinterpreted and then added their own words to CM's remarks. CM is known for his rather tongue-in-cheek threats to withhold the goods on LL boards pertaining to various topics, not just matrixes. But he always delivers the goods after creating such havoc.

Back in the day, Charlie has said he was not a "fan" of matrixes. But over the years, I have found remarks such as these on my torrents:


In regard to my 6/23/74 24 bit matrix:

"This is one matrix that I would like to hear. Two great sources. Looking forward to it."


In regard to my older 10/10/82 matrix:

charliemiller 2009-12-25 01:46:01
"You should re-do this with the upgraded transfer I did with rango's masters.

Just a suggestion"


Moreover, I have seen a handful of other occasions where Charlie in fact has recommended HIS sources for matrixes, as in the above example. Do we need any more proof that Charlie has approved of matrix endeavors using his sources, and that we need not hop on the Charlie idol-worshiping bandwagon in order to bash other sources? The whole "Charlie hates Hunter's work" rumor was a fraud from the get-go and the result of people needing to hate something new and different, and in some cases, if not most, even better - "What? - something sounds better than a CM source? Oh my god, the earth has spun from its axis! Impossibe! MY NAME IS HUCKER!! What the hell? Where's my pills?"

Let's all realize that CM's invaluable work has played an integral role in the creation of quality matrixes, and his work has not been taken for granted. Fact is, CM & HS have had a long-standing, amicable relationship.

I went back to look at the original post and in fact nowhere does CM mention your matrixes as having anything to do with his decision to stop circulating boards. I guess it was CH's continual insertion of his opinions into the thread that caused me to remember it that way. Many apologies.

joby- no worries as Charlie recently posted that he has a lot of new shows to post, many where there are no soundboards currently circulating. He's been releasing other shows a well- upgrades of 7-5-81 and 7-7-81 so the gravy train is still alive and well.

Thanks BD, I've noticed and appreciated the recent work CM has been posting here there and everywhere, particularly the improvements to his already existing recordings with pitch correction and the like. I just feel bad for contributing to Hunter Seamon's stress in any way with my own confusion about the subject. I guess with the post in question CM was just having a bad week or something. Fuck it, I blame Cliff.

No worries, joby. I have gathered you are not the only one who has been confused around this issue, as tons of folk read these boards. The fact is, some stuff did go down at one point on a matrix thread where Charlie said he would not circulate new stuff due to his stuff being used for matrixes - but like I said, he has said this for a handful of different reasons, matrixes being just one of them. I thought it was important to share, in light of the questions, that CM has had radically different opinions expressed for some time now that should diffuse the issue that people are gossiping about.
